Variants of Beacons for all occasions
Beacons in various sizes and forms
Beacons are a pretty flexible solution to various use cases and problems. Indeed Beacons come in very different forms and sizes depending on requirements based on the individual use case the beacons are used for.
Theoretically the beacons all use the same hardware referring to circuit board and components. Only components change from time to time either based on new hardware technology or on specific wish and requirement of customers. Especially enabling sensors is a main topic there.
In general only the casing of the beacons changes based on requirements, e.g. withstand harsh conditions.
Categories defining beacons
When talking about different use cases you stumble upon a lot of different requirements that may to have apply on the beacons. For example: When tracking containers in a high security warehouse, they have to be resistant to mechanical damage but at the same time one must be able to change the asset they are holding on to. You can not use a magnetic fixing, because that might interfere with bluetooth signals. On the other hand the containers have a rough surface due to dirt, so suction cups to fix the beacons could also fail to work. In general some testing needs to be done for individual challenges, but we were able to fix our beacons onto everything so far.
On special request we are and were also able to combine our beacons for individual use cases.
Most prominent is our eInk-beacon combination that allows to send and recieve data for the eInk display via BLE mesh.
This eInk-beacon combination is originally manufactured for a digital shopping cart with low energy displays in the handle.
